Re-purposing

I have a love for all things Vintage, especially vintage fabrics.  I acquired several boxes of fabrics from auctions, ebay and thrift store lucky finds several years ago and they have just sat in the same boxes unused just waiting, and begging to be used.

I found some old vintage sheets in one of the boxes and was really happy to have found them, just look at the loveliness:




I don't know how I could have forgotten about these.  Well, I started to work on one and turned one of them into this twist on a wrap dress


The pattern can be found on the special issue of Stitch Magazine
 

I just loved how quick and easy it was to put this together, and it really does have a simple, yet classy look, definitely plan on making more.


I tried it on my daughter and she just loved it!



Get your issue today, or if you're interested, this dress is available for sale, it fits a size 2-3, worn only for a few minutes by my daughter to take some photos :o)  Contact me by email if you would like to purchase this or if you would like one custom made for you.  (BunnyLaneDesigns@yahoo.com)

Oh, she is a DOLL! The dress is so perfect for her. You may have to make her one to keep if you sell this one!
